Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Food Storage Waffles

My beat-up copy of Betty Crocker's Cookbook provides my go-to recipe for waffles, and this recipe is adapted from that one.

Plug in your waffle iron.  In a bowl, combine:  2 T. whole egg powder, 2 c. white or wheat flour, 5 T. buttermilk powder or 1/4 c. non-instant powdered milk, 1 T. sugar, 2 t. baking powder plus 1 t. baking soda (if using the buttermilk powder) or 4 t. baking powder and no baking soda (if using non-instant powdered milk), 1/4 t. salt.  Stir until thoroughly mixed, then add 1/2 c. oil and 1-3/4 c. water.  Stir until nearly lump-free.  Pour a scant cup of batter onto waffle iron and cook until done.


Thankful thought:  Thanks for seasonal fruit, which is oh-so-yummy on waffles!

  1. Oh, YUMMIE!!!! Just looking at those waffles is letting me drool.....
    It's a good thing I don't have a waffle-iron, I would eat them every day and I would never fit in an airplane-seat!!! But strawberries I eat every day with yoghurt as my breakfast. They're yummy too.

  2. That looks divine! Believe it or not, I have only cooked waffles twice. I failed at both attempts, so I quit trying. ;)

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
